Director of Policy & Advocacy
Nicole Dionisio’s heart lives in Scarborough, where she was born, raised, and recently graduated from the University of Toronto’s Scarborough campus. Through her work in various roles within UTSC and the surrounding community, Nicole discovered her passion for politics as it relates to queer issues, race-based issues, environmentalism, and indigenous issues. She has spent the last four years as a leader in the largest student organization at her school, making policy recommendations from internal governance to academic, social justice, and sustainability initiatives.
As the Director of Policy and Advocacy for the Toronto Youth Cabinet, Nicole is responsible for leading efforts on policy development for the TYC and recommending positions to the membership. She is looking forward to working with the executive team on the many intersecting issues that Toronto youth face and working directly with youth this year.
